    Better question...Will Fury get up Undertaker style if Ngannou catches him with a Ford Escort in a boxing glove?

    Francis wanted to be a boxer so he went to a fhighting gym... His trainer advised him to do MMA because it is easier to succeed than in boxing... Does that answer your question?

    Virtually no chance.

    Maybe an outside shot vs a sloppy sluggish fucker like Whyte.

    I don't think Ngannou would kill Fury in a MMA fight. Ngannous grappling are so basic I think Fury can negate the gap in 6 months or something then make it a straight up boxing match.

    Francis is a guy I see folding fast mentally if he doesn’t get that ko early idk if he can knock you dead all fight like wilder can. He also hasn’t trained and sparred boxing like these guys. These fights just don’t make sense it’s more appealing when the specialist comes over to mma and wins fights with it like Izzy. Mma champions are being disgraced in boxing right now. It’s part of their marketing now and they will continue to take advantage of old aging mma guys and young inexperienced mma guys because it’s easy Ben just made the most for one fight he’s ever made the list is going to keep growing. The only way it’s interesting is if you take a boxer and put him in an mma fight- if he can win it with his boxing that’s interesting. If an mma fighter can win a boxing match with his amateur boxing that’s good for him but it’s not entertaining to watch and 9/10 they get their heads bashed in . Did James tony get his head bashed in? No . Fuck boxing

    Nope, it would have to be a repeat of wilder vs fury 1 except that fury doesn’t get up lol

    fury is awkward but he’s damn good, Francis would be swingin at air and getting tagged until he gassed and the ref stops it

    No chance, even if it were K1 rules I'd still favour Fury.

    Ngannou is an awful boxer even for MMA standards.

    If Francis could, why would he stay MMA getting shit pay? Even Francis knows he'll achieve mediocrity in boxing at best.

    Ofcourse he can, he has the power to knock anybody out. Is it likely to happen? Fuck to the no. 93/100 times Fury outboxes him easily.

    I sparred couple of UFC fighters, no big names, they would land waay more shots on me then I could on them, they were also taking it easy obviously, as was I because I'm not a dick or an idiot. But couple times I sparred a pro boxer under boxing rules, it was ridiculous , they could pretty much touch my chin at any times and I couldn't land anything other then a bodyshot here or there. Also we were going super light, and it still didn't feel good someone finding the tip of your chin on every other shot. The boxing skill needed in boxing is a lot more then striking skill needed to be a good professional mma fighter.

    Are these the people that thought Ronda would outbox Floyd?
     
  20. No chance at all.

    Though I do believe that Ngannou could beat Fury with boxing-technique in a MMA-match, where Fury is also worrying about takedowns, prolonged clinching etc. If Fury had to have that many defensive considerations, Ngannou could easily slip through and KO him with a strike. But in a boxing match? Nope. Not going to happen.
